Medovukha, low ABV hop mead served very fresh - still with CO2 from fermentation. Very tasty.

I used either EKG or Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. The bag was unlabeled, which is sort of why I used it. 5 grams, a few minutes boil, cool it down add some honey until you hit about 1.040-1.060-ish (I decided to dilute to 1.043) and then pitch baking yeast. (Any other yeast will probably be too effective) Ferment for a few days in a pet bottle with a airlock and then make sure some pressure builds up in the bottle by putting the screw cork back on, put it in the fridge for a day or two. Drink.

Those were my interpretations of the very lousy instructions I found on some Russian site. Next time I'll use Cascade and try going for a little higher ABV, and wait a bit longer.

Left to right - strawberry kiwi, orange with raisins, blackberry raspberry blueberry, orange blossom traditional.

The picture quality is rather poor. The two in the middle are about 2 months in and starting to clear nicely.

Was drinking a 2 year old sparkling mead, made with Windsor ale yeast. Tasted better than a gluten-free beer and had about the same amount of carbonation as a regular beer.

This is the first mead I made, aged it on oak, roughly 2 years old. It just got shoved aside and forgot about during moving. Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

So I know that this is like 10 years later but the recipe would be great for this.
